Simulink Block Diagram of Sixth-order Model for Power System Dynamic Study


  •   Prechanon Kumkratug


The order model of synchronous generator plays very important roles of determine the accuracy of power system dynamic study. This paper presents the simulation and analysis of the sixth order model of synchronous generator for power system dynamic study by using Simulink. The mathematical model of stream turbine governor and exciter are also considered in this paper. The presented method is tested on the single machine infinite bus system.
